Recent evidence suggests that pulse pressure (PP) is a strong cardiovascular diseases’ risk factor. We systematically evaluated all relevant studies to determine whether PP can be used as an independent predictor of stroke and mortality. A meta-analysis was performed by searching the published literature using MEDLINE, Cochrane and Google Scholar databases(More)
Long-term headache attacks may cause human brain network reorganization in patients with migraine. In the current study, we calculated the topologic properties of functional networks based on the Brainnetome atlas using graph theory analysis in 29 female migraineurs without aura (MWoA) and in 29 female age-matched healthy controls. Compared with controls,(More)
OBJECTIVE CHA2DS2-VASc is the extension of the CHADS2 score developed by Birmingham 2009. This risk stratification schema is often used in clinical setting when considering additional risk factors for developing stroke in AF patients. However, its role in the non-AF population is unknown. This study was designed to evaluate the accuracy of the CHADS2 and(More)
Migraine is a common recurrent neurological disorder combining nausea, vomiting, and hypersensitivities to visual, auditory, olfactory and somatosensory stimuli. However, the dysfunction of the sensorimotor network in migraineurs has not been well clarified. In the present study, we evaluated the dysfunction of the sensorimotor network in 30 migraineurs(More)
The purpose of this study was to perform a meta-analysis of current literature to determine whether lowering blood pressure (BP) during the acute phase of an ischemic stroke improves short- and long-term outcomes. PubMed, Cochrane, and Embase were searched until September 5, 2014 using combinations of the search terms: blood pressure reduction, reduced(More)
